Black Senator Pens Moving Tribute to MLK Jr. — The Left Lines up to Call Him a Racist

The White House recognized the day with a video containing rare footage of the civil rights icon:

It wasn’t long until critics started calling Scott a racist — but not because of the comments he made Monday. They focused on the fact he has supported President Donald Trump and that he is a Republican:
